About CADASIL-Together We Have Hope
The CADASIL is a hereditary disease that affects the muscle walls in the small arteries that provide blood flow to the brain. It results from a protein deficiency, and is characterized by recurrent ischemic (mini-stroke) events, migraine headache, and/or severe mood disorders. CADASIL stands for cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy. CADASIL-Together We Have Hope is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides support, encouragement, and information to those affected and their families, as well as to the medical professionals who treat affected individuals.
